Finding Federal Funding

At TSI, we understand the importance of providing a safe and comfortable environment for learning and staying productive. With funding available, our experts are here to help guide you through the application process.

Why use Federal Funding for my School Building? 

Improve the building’s indoor air quality (IAQ) through IoT enabled continuous air quality monitoring and spot-checking problem areas when alerted. Making sure your HVAC systems are functioning properly is a major part of keeping your building’s IAQ healthy.

School building repairs and improvements allow the school to run more smoothly, helping  alleviate certain health risks and exposure to indoor environmental quality (IEQ) hazards, while providing students and staff the confidence they need within their classrooms and hallways.

Develop plans to improve your school and implement guidance from local authorities and government agencies, such as the CDC to ensure the health and well-being of staff and students are at their best.

EPA Grant Funding to Address Indoor Air Pollution at Schools

According to the EPA, grants will be distributed on a competitive basis to states, territories, Indian Tribes, nonprofit organizations, and local governments and educational agencies. These grants aim to support activities related to Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) improvement in schools, especially in low-income, disadvantaged, and Tribal communities. The program encourages entities with experience in IAQ management, training, research, and policy dissemination, especially in school settings, to apply. Applicants can submit one grant application to fund projects in one or more of the following areas:

  • Capacity Building for IAQ and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reduction targeting K-12 school facility management staff, health officers, and decision makers in low-income and disadvantaged communities.
  • Capacity Building for Tribal IAQ and GHG Reduction targeting facility management staff, health officers, and decision makers in K-12 schools in Tribal communities.
  • Training and Education Campaign for IAQ and GHG Reduction targeting staff at K-12 schools in low-income, disadvantaged, and Tribal communities, or for developing qualified staff to implement IAQ and GHG Reduction Plans.
  • Research and Demonstration Projects for IAQ and GHG Reduction in K-12 schools located in low-income, disadvantaged, and/or Tribal communities.

The program has an estimated total funding of $32,000,000 and plans to award four to six grants ranging from $5,000,000 to $8,000,000 each to support IAQ activities over a period of five years. The final number and value of grants awarded will depend on the availability of funds and the quality of received applications.
